I can't seem to get to a catalog or parts listing for Knuck parts on the vintage page. Anybody know what's up?

Does it work for you Pa? The only thing I can bring up is some pistons and rings. Various searches take me to a page that says these products are not available at this time.

Gee, that's kind of amazing, pa. A few years ago all of us S&S dealers were required to sign a no-internet sales agreement. S&S was protecting it's dealer network by only allowing local dealers with experienced mechanics, to make sales. No pricing listed on your website, and no sales of new parts on e-bay, or you lose your dealer status. Then S&S started selling t-shirts, caps, an other apparel direct to the public. They told us it wouldn't hurt our sales because it doesn't require an experienced mechanic to install those items. Now, it looks to me like they are selling hard parts direct to the public and cutting dealers out of the transaction. Is that how it appears to you?
It gets harder every year to justify keeping a shop open.

Curt,
It has a "details" button and then a button to find an authorized dealer in an area or to create a "wish list" but I never found a "shopping Cart " button for hard parts. It still seems to want to direct you to a local dealer.

If I click on "top end", I get pistons, rings, and cylinders. Basically the same with all the categories. I get what is in the category. At the bottom of amost all of the category linked pages is a "view all" link. If you click on that, it shows you what is available in each category. Hope this helps.... Pa

Thanks Tim ! I felt squished between a rock and a hard place for a moment there. Curt is right correct about the dealer only sales. I've heard nothing that would change that to date.
